    Hi all,

    I am looking to purchase a new wing as I am moving into doubles.

    I've seen most people using the Halcyon evolve. Are there any other alternatives that are just as good as halcyon in terms of quality? I am currently looking at the tecline 22 but there is not much information/reviews out in the sea.

    Anyone with experiences with any of the above two wings feel free to share!

    no reason to get a horseshoe wing these days unless if you are getting a used one at a substantial discount. get an evolve instead if you are buying new.

    There is NO such thing as BEST.
    I have done quite a bid of twin tank diving myself and H is definitely not the most popular brand.
    Over-priced and over-rated? YES.

    I would agree. A wing is just material with a bladder inside. It's not rocket science. Cheaper brands are just as good an expensive brands.

    Tecline makes a great wing absolutely nothing wrong with it, just as good of quality as the Halcyon but alot cheaper. I see your located in Singapore, I'm sure you know but just in case not check out 300 bar I have several friends that have bought Tecline products from them. Also have a very good friend that does photography advertisements for them.

    Okay, thank you for that! Yes, I have bought a number of items from 300bar and they have been great so far. Just trying to find what are the main differences between halcyon and tecline and whether they are worth for their price.
